The Society for Clinical Research Sites was founded in 2012 in response to the growing need for an organization to represent the voice of research sites within the clinical research enterprise. Christine Pierre, the founder of SCRS and the Site Solutions Summits, was motivated to provide sites with resources, mentorship, and education opportunities through a member-based organization dedicated to providing sites with both a voice and community.
The establishment of the Society for Clinical Research Sites is announced during the 7th annual Site Solutions Summit. Almost 300 members from 11 countries join SCRS in the first 3 months following the announcement.
